Die-hard Elvis Presley fans in the rock 'n' roller's home state of Tennessee are calling on local motorists to order a new license plate tribute to The King in a bid to get it passed by law.

Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc has proposed a vanity license plate featuring Presley and a guitar, but the state of Tennessee can't approve the request until orders reach 1,000 units.

Only Tennessee residents can apply for the plate, which is being offered to raise funds for the Regional Medical Center in Memphis - the site of the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center.
